“Very Good Beach Bar Food”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I'm rating this restaurant as Very Good for several reasons. First let me say that the interior could use some paint, floors worn, service was a bit slow but very friendly.

Here's why I'm rating it as Very Good. The menu is simple beach themed bar food at a very decent price. Seafood was at market price, burgers were huge and the beverages were ice cold.

This is not a high end restaurant. It has a neighbor hood bar feel with a combination of bar height tables, regular tables and picnic tables. Don't think you are going to a five star place. That being said - we had a great experience and felt that we were served a very nice meal at an affordable price that did not take advantage of us being from out of town.

In addition, we ordered and asked the waiter if it would be ok if we stepped next door to a shop to pick up a gift. She said "No Problem, I'll keep the food warm if it's out before you get back." We were gone about 10-15 minutes and when we walked back in she brought out food right out and it was still very hot and fresh.

We had seafood, fried and not greasy. Cheese burger cooked to order, juicy and stacked tall with garden fresh tomato slices, sweet onion and lettuce. Sides included a salad which was ok and an order of sweet tater fries which were pretty amazing.

Beach Fare - Good Stuff

Sit at the bar and let Jessica take care of you. Burgers, wings, salads, sandwiches.. Cold beer and a full bar. We've landed there on a Friday and Saturday night and enjoyed the live music. Try the "Jamaican me crazy" chips for an appetizer. Solid overall experience.

“Where employees party with customers...”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Ate there on a weekday night, was shocked with how things are run here. Employees constantly out back smoking. if you need something,you have to go get them!! Employees taking shots at bar with full restaurant! Hope you don't have kids with you when you come,with a bar inside rest.with you,the conversations are very loud and filled with profanities! Will def.be cooking at home next time we go to Mexico Beach!!! Could go to grocery and cook quicker than the time it took for burgers!!

“Lunch fair!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We have not been in two years to Marleys but went for lunch. Service was great but wound up eating chicken. Again we were offered balsa fish as fish of the day! Not sure if the price of gulf fish has gone up too high but please balsa is horrible! Lunch was a little high for a piece of chicken with bacon and one slice of cheese but it was okay. Most of the menu was a little high and the beer at lunch was very high! Only three tables had people at lunch. Most place offer some kind of lunch deal and lower beer to get you in there and maybe they need to rethink their menu especially for lunch. Did notice at night it was full with a live band
